A Syrian military jet has been shot down near the Syrian-Turkish border. While reports claimed that the jet was fired at by Turkish anti-aircraft system after it violated airspace, Ankara has not yet confirmed or denied the allegations.
A Syrian plane was shot down on Sunday in the northern border region with Turkey where rebels have been battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces, activists and regional media said.
It was not immediately clear who was responsible.
